Wash. Jury Weighs Case Of Actress Who Sued IMDB

SEATTLE (AP) â¿¿ A federal jury in Seattle is deliberating the case of a little-known actress who sued Amazon.com Inc. and its Internet Movie Database for revealing her age.

Huong Hoang goes by the stage name Junie Hoang and has appeared in such films as "Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver" and "Hoodrats 2: Hoodrat Warriors."

The 41-year-old says offers for roles dried up after the popular online movie database mined her account information to learn her true age. She sued for breach of contract, and the case went to trial this week. The judge dismissed parent company Amazon as a defendant before the trial.

IMDb has argued that it has a First Amendment right to publish accurate information and Hoang can't prove she lost any money because of it.
